Delphi may strike which would shutdown GM. If GM can get a court order
preventing the strike it may save them and half the city from more economic
depression which will give GM some breathing room but force Delphi workers
to either walk off and quit or take a pay cut. Good attorneys will be needed
though to fight those old outdated 1930s union laws/rules. Those old union
rules are one of the main things that have been strangling the US auto
industry. Those high wages and benefits can no longer be afforded in a
global economy unless those rules are also applied globally....that wont
happen so its no longer an even playing field. No wonder the Japanese are
capitalizing they dont have the same overhead.
The Delphi folks may believe, with justification, that they have
irretrievably lost it all and they then have nothing to loose by striking
and using the Sampson Option. If the courts order them back to work they,
in a kamikaze frame of mind, will probably ignore the courts.
Another ignoramus heard from....
I suspect that GM would love to be tied to "1930s union laws/rules", right
